Journolist 2.0: Occupy Wall Street Emails Show MSM, Dylan Ratigan, Working With Protesters To Craft Message - Big Journalism. Journalists are Advising Protesters. RUSH: The numbers of people showing up are not that big.
I got a piece by Walter Shapiro in the New Republic. And he says one of the major points about this is that it isn't that big. The number of people involved in this thing are not that many. Now, wouldn't you know it. I thought I had it in this stack. And also, do you know -- this probably will not surprise you, Andrew Breitbart has dug this one up. The names on the list are a veritable who's who in the media.
RUSH: Here's that Walter Shapiro piece from the New Republic, "The Truth About Occupy Wall Street: It’s Much Smaller Than It Seems -- With tensions at a fever pitch and TV viewers from Laos to Lapland glued to their sets," and therein lies the reason our guys are caving on this. "From viewing fragmentary photos and glancing at the headlines, the uninitiated might imagine that this spot was a pristine green sward before the protests. And to them it's idyllic. Mr. Mr. WaPo's Wemple: 'Really Disgraceful' That O'Reilly Called Protesters 'Far-Left Loons' and 'Anarchists. On Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, host Howard Kurtz and guest Erik Wemple of the Washington Post both took exception with FNC's Bill O'Reilly for recently calling some of the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters "far-left loons" and "anarchists.
" Kurtz noted the contrast in how MSNBC and FNC have responded to the protests: Keith Olbermann at Current TV and also Ed Schultz at MSNBC playing up these protests, criticizing the coverage or lack thereof. A marked contrast to the way Fox News is treating them. Bill O'Reilly the other night saying that these are "far-left loons" and "anarchists. " Big Soros Money Linked to “Occupy Wall Street” Labor unions, communists, “community organizers,” socialists, and anti-capitalist agitators have all joined together to “Occupy Wall Street” and protest against “greed,” corporations, and bankers.
But despite efforts to portray the movement as “leaderless” or “grassroots,” it is becoming obvious that there is much more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye. Billionaire financier George Soros’ fingerprints, for example, have been all over the anti-Wall Street campaign from the very beginning. And this week, the infamous hedge-fund boss publicly announced his sympathy for the protesters and their complaints about bailouts — despite the fact that he lobbied for even greater unconstitutional handouts to bankers in 2009. “Actually I can understand their sentiment, frankly,” he told reporters while announcing a large donation to the United Nations.
“I can sympathize with their grievances.” But Soros’ support for the protesters goes far beyond his tepid public statements. Occupy Wall Street and Soros’ Fingerprints. Pages: 1 2 The fingerprints of the preeminent funder of the activist Left today, George Soros, are all over the anti-American “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
The seventh-wealthiest person in America (net worth: $22 billion), Soros has publicly embraced Occupy Wall Street and financially supports a left-wing group that is funneling money to the movement. As I note in my new book Subversion Inc., this Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that wants to radically transform America. He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline. Soros, a currency manipulator with an insider trading conviction, praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better functioning government than the United States.” Video Exposing How ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Was Organized From Day One by SEIU / ACORN Front – The Working Family Party, and How They All Tie to the Obama Administration, DNC, Democratic Socialists of America, Tides and George Soros.
Breakdown of the Connections Between The Working Family Party, SEIU, ACORN, The New Party, The DNC, Democratic Socialists of America, Tides, George Soros and The Obama Administration: The Working Families Party was established in the 90s by key members of the the socialist organizations The New Party, ACORN, SEIU, and a coalition of other labor unions and community organizations.
Patrick Gaspard, the current executive director of the DNC, former director of Obama’s Office of Political Affairs, was an organizer for the New Party, the executive vice president of the SEIU Local 1199, political director for Bertha Lewis (the former president of ACORN) and a co-chair of the Working Families Party. The New Party’s influential Chicago chapter began to formed in January 1995. Its members consisted mainly of individuals from ACORN, SEIU and the Democratic Socialists of America. Obama attended a New Party function and received their endorsement in 1995. US Day of Rage Non-Violent Civil Disobedience Wall Street. What, exactly, is a “US Day of Rage?”
Well, on September 17th we may find out for certain, but until then, The Blaze is revealing what information does exist about this very nefarious-sounding campaign. A US Day of Rage is the title given to a day of ostensibly “non-violent” civil disobedience orchestrated by a group of radicals — that reportedly include SEIU’s Stephen Lerner and ACORN founder Wade Rathke (who, coincidentally, formerly served as president of SEIU’s local New Orleans branch) — targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.
It’s worth noting that the title of the movement — if its intentions are indeed non-violent in nature — appears to contradict itself slightly. But what is perhaps even more interesting than its title is who is allegedly behind the movement. You may recall that back in March The Blaze exposed Lerner for stating his aspirations to destroy JP Morgan Chase and cause the collapse of the entire stock market. Protesters begin 'Day of Rage' against capitalism. Text smaller Text bigger Social media networks fomenting a nationwide “Day of Rage” protest are reporting that hundreds have gathered in New York City’s financial district to protest “Wall Street’s corporate plunder.”
According to a Bloomberg report, organizers had originally hoped as many as 20,000 would gather in the financial district and “occupy” it through tent cities and civil disobedience, if necessary, for months. As a loosely formed conglomerate of Twitter, Facebook and online activists – similar to the Arab spring protesters that have been toppling governments in Africa – clearly identifying the goals and tactics of the protests is nearly impossible. According to the website Adbusters, a group promoting the demonstration, the goal of “#OccupyWallStreet” is to get President Barack Obama to establish a commission to end “the influence money has over our representatives in Washington.” The group advocates camping out in Manhattan for months if needed to get the message across. “Day of Rage” Obama re-election team in disguise?
